There’s no luxury midsize crossover quite like the 2020 Acura RDX, but how does it compare to an in-segment challenger from Audi? No surprises here: Any driver who pits the Acura RDX vs. Audi Q5 will see that our model provides a whole lot more, for a whole lot less. Take a closer look below, and make the right choice for your San Diego-area drives.

Price and Value: RDX vs. Q5

  • Starting Price: If you’ve done any research at all, you may have seen that the 2020 Audi Q5 is priced high, at $43,300 MSRP. The Acura RDX gives you more room to consider upgrades and options, since it starts at just $37,800 MSRP*.
  • Warranty: A new Audi Q5 includes a 4-year/50,000-mile limited basic warranty. The Acura RDX warranty covers you ‘bumper-to-bumper’ for the same amount of time, but in addition, it covers your powertrain for six years or 70,000 miles.
  • Reliability: The 2019 RDX received a strong J.D. Power Predicted Reliability score of 4 out of 5, and although the 2020 model has not yet been rated, it’s expected to perform to the same standard. The 2020 Audi Q5 only scored 3 out of 5 in the same tests.

Power and Practicality: RDX vs. Q5

  • Engine Power and Torque: Without upgrades, the Audi Q5 only provides 248 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. This makes it considerably weaker than the RDX, which provides 272 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque as standard.
  • Fuel Economy: The EPA estimates that both models offer the same city and highway fuel economy, when properly equipped. In either choice, you can enjoy up to 22 mpg city and 28 mpg highway**.
  • Cargo Capacity: The Q5 only gives you 25.1 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear row, and up to 53.1 cubic feet with those seats folded flat. The RDX is more practical in either case, with 29.5 cubic feet and 58.9 cubic feet in either position.
